On David Holmgren's website, this is described by saying:
Well I'm at the interface between employment and.. something else. My redundancy letter just came through and after a few weeks worth of redundancy-is-on-the-cards meetings (and a year trying to work out how to leave work and what to do next), I'm looking forward with nervous and excited anticipation. There are lots of things potentially bubbling up, and this time in my life - this moment in the margins, so to speak - feels ripe with opportunity.
If only I could keep this positive attitude through the whole of this process!
